When you are looking into improving or upgrading your home, air conditioning is something that might be good to look into. If your system is old, outdated, or not working very well, it is time for a new, improved, and working system. For a new system, it is very important that you know what you need to keep your home in shape. Having all of the proper heating and cooling systems is important and sometimes you need to be asking the right questions because choosing the right system is something that will affect your home and family for a long time.
Here are 5 questions you should always ask when buying a new air conditioning system for your home.
- What brands do you offer for purchasing?
Some contracting companies that do selling and services only really over one or two brands for you to choose. Knowing what brand you want will help you choose the right contractor that can meet all of your expectations and standards. It can also help you make sure you get the latest technology in air conditioning.
- Should I schedule yearly maintenance/check ups?
If you are thinking that maintenance for your air conditioning system is only for old systems, you are very wrong. Yearly maintenance and check ups on your system is very important to make sure that you have a solid and efficient system that works for its total estimated lifespan. Without yearly maintenance, it can make your system run down and not work faster. Newer air conditioners are designed to last over a decade, but neglecting the basic check ups and maintenance it needs yearly, it can shorten the overall lifespan of the system.
- Do I need anything additional to help with the air quality in my home?
When having just an air conditioner, your air quality can decrease greatly. There are many different airborne things that are not caught in the system itself and can come from the system. Adding air purifiers and other amenities that can help decrease the number of air pollutants and dust in the air in your home. Older homes are more susceptible to have more of these air pollutants, so it is important if you have an older home to look into these kinds of air purifier systems.
- Should I buy a brand new thermostat?
The technology for thermostats has improved and advanced greatly in the past decade. If you do have an outdated thermostat from over a decade ago, it is recommended to get a new one. If you are worried about the higher costs for a new thermostat, just remember that a new thermostat can save you money in the long run from energy costs.
- What do you think will be the total cost of buying and installing the new system?
The total cost can vary from company to company, so make sure you talk about costs and all that jazz with your technician.
